How AquaCast® Liner Helps Patients Stay Home & Stay Safe
In the current environment, patients are being encouraged to stay away from doctors’ offices unless a visit is absolutely necessary. Even though healthcare waiting rooms are typically clean environments, the proximity to other patients means that visitors are still more exposed to risk than they would be at home. AquaCast Liner helps patients avoid contracting COVID-19 and other infectious illnesses by increasing the ease of handwashing and reducing the need for recasting. Learn more about the benefits of our waterproof casting materials below.
A great benefit of waterproof cast liners is that they allow patients to wash their hands more frequently, and more thoroughly, than they would with a traditional cast with a cotton or synthetic cast liner. We don’t need to tell you that increased handwashing can highly reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 and other diseases! By offering your patients a waterproof cast, you are not only helping to make the recovery process easier; you are also increasing the level of safety from communicable diseases, too.
If[BC1] a traditional cotton or synthetic padded cast becomes wet, it will likely stay wet for an extended period of time, forcing the patient to return to a medical treatment facility for recasting. As we mentioned above, this exposes the patient to more risk, as public waiting rooms have a higher potential for disease transmission than private homes. Recasting is also typically expensive, and some healthcare insurers do not cover it, creating an additional cost for the medical facility.
If the patient is able to wear a fiberglass cast with a waterproof cast liner underneath it, however, the necessitation of a recast is significantly reduced. The waterproof cast liner and fiberglass over-layer will not hold water. With summer days fast approaching, this becomes all the more important as patients spend more time at the beach, pool, lake or ocean. With an AquaCast waterproof cast liner, an accidental fall into a pool is not a problem, and your patient can stay home and stay healthy!
